    If you know Chuck Naugle at all you'll know how much he loves "show and tell". Here is a something he recently shared.

    It is from: Motordom DBA Oasis Motors in Tucson AZ.

    Too bad the Serial Number doesn't match my '61 2dr wagon that had an Oasis Motors tag on the tailgate.

    Frank, that pretty well mimics what happened to my dad. While living in Joliet, Illinois he bought a new 1950 Champion 4 door. In 1954 he traded it in on a new Ford Country Squire wagon. Within the week my dad went to the dealer and bought back his 1950 Champion because he liked it so much and hated the Ford even though he kept it. Dad always said the Ford was the worst car he ever owned, and also got the worst fuel economy.

    Charleston, Missouri?

    When I was a small boy my folks bought a new '58 Ford. Dad said it was the worst car he ever bought. Anyway in '60 they started looking for a new car and one day Dad came home with a new Lark. Just to try out. Next thing I remember is that instead of the Studebaker they bought a new Rambler Classic wagon, 6-cylinder, stick shift. That was bought at Cerney (sp?) Motors in Cairo, IL. I think the Studebaker dealer was in Charleston. Maybe in with another car brand. Anybody know of a dealer in Charleston, MO? Thanks

    This ad of 1955 mentions Kariger Motors, Inc. "Studebaker". Not related...In 1952 I bought a new 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook cnvt. from Dallas Shepler Chrysler-Plymouth.

    Jim, re. your relatives' dealership, Mentzer Motors in Barberton, OH--sorry it took me so long to come across your post! Good to hear from you.

    Some years back, someone in our Ohio Region Studebaker Drivers' Club somehow got a hold of the 1963 franchise agreement for Mentzer Motors. In it, they agreed to attempt to sell 25 new Studebaker cars and two new Studebaker trucks that year.

    I do know there was a larger Studebaker dealer, Mack Motor Sales, on East Avenue in Akron which was really just a couple miles down the road from Mentzer's. They and Mentzer's were in business at the same time.

    Do you have any memorabilia from the dealership?

    After a bit more research on your Peoria "Factory Store" question, I didn't have any luck. No more info than I already told you. HOWEVER, I did find another dealer that was at 1000 SW Jefferson St. called (oddly enough) 'Peoria Studebaker'. It couldn't have been there very long. The 1st mention of it I find is in a 1959 city directory. That building still stands and is an auto glass shop. I don't believe Peoria Studebaker is listed on Bob's Studebaker Resource Website either. Not sure if you've looked at his list, but he has LOTS of old dealers listed there.
